Yesterday, a friend and I went to a quilt shop I had never been to. It's a great quilt shop. It was quite a drive but well worth it. I went to a shop in Celeste, Tx called the Quilt Mercantile. The shop is owned by a mother/daughter team and both ladies were very nice. Very friendly shop and lots of great fabric and books....I even found a kit for a quilt I wanted to make earlier but the LQS had run out of the fabric and it wasn't available. Woo hoo, I can't wait to start it. I will take it with me this coming up weekend to work on and drool over at retreat. It's so nice to find things you really want and didn't think you'd be able to get! Fun times! It's another project but one I was really interested in doing so I don't feel bad about buying more fabric. I even ran into a friend I had not seen in years at this shop and got to visit with her. It's really strange how small the quilt world is, huh?
I was planning on sewing today but my son and sweet grandkids came over and spent the day with us. I played with my grandkids and watched TV with them instead of sewing. Now that the kids have left, I can at least pull out my pattern and book I bought yesterday and look at them. I will not be sewing tonight but will try to get some things done this week. I'll have to decide what to take to retreat and pack up so I can leave Friday. Hmmm, I'll have to think about this. Til next time....
